Its built rather crude. I can see at least a dozen ways I can improve this that wont cost me a penny.. Anyone know anything about these: "Stoves-In-A-Pocket"s??

Welp its too small for the Esbit alcohol stove. To use an Esbit folding stove on this is pointless because it is a stove stand itself, and is redundant.

I think oops was saying to just throw an esbit tab in the bottom of it ;)

I know you gotta have some big pockets for it. :mrgreen:

Looks tougher than the Russian gas stoves.

What are the dimensions and how much you want for it? I'll pay shipping plus I'll throw in a nice alcohol stove :mrgreen:
